Raju sandwich stall is very popular amongst the students and working crowd here and so we thought we would give it a try. And trust us, we were not disappointed. We tried the veg cheese roll, which is absolutely delicious. The sub-bun was grilled to make it slightly crispy, and the roll was stuffed with a succulent filling.

The pav is soft, and when dipped in bhaji, makes for an amazing combination. For a humble street side stall such as this, the pav bhaji definitely is a yummy surprise!

8. Bubblegum Candy Floss – Papa Cream

As the name suggests, this bubblegum flavored ice cream is topped with a string of candy floss. The candy floss is light in texture, and is not overwhelmingly sweet. However, the bubblegum flavor seems to have been lost in the ice cream. If not for the bubblegum flavor, the ice cream is smooth, infused with ice crystals which give it a slightly crunchy nature, and frothy. Our verdict? Given the satisfaction levels, this isn’t worth the price.

  • Where: Cambatta (Eros) Building, J.T Road, Churchgate, Mumbai
  • Price: ₹ 150/-
  • Rating: 2/5
  • Other Great Dishes Here: Pulao
